Welcome to

Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery Associates
of Connecticut

For many patients, electing to have cosmetic surgery or needing to have reconstructive procedures is one of the most personal decisions they will ever make. Since cosmetic and reconstructive surgery affects both the patient’s physical and emotional well-being — more so, than with many other medical procedures — we believe in truly getting to know our patients from their medical history to their lifestyle. We understand the process and we are committed to offering a modern, holistic, patient-centric approach to high-quality medical care.
